    I won't re-beat the dead horse of checking your ego at the door even though I strongly believe it, and being competent with your weapon has been covered also. So, here are 2 things I haven't seen that impressed me when I heard them.

    I took an Urban Rifle Class from Clint Smith at Thunder Ranch Oregon and he said a couple things that have stayed with me to this day.

    1.) (After I stopped shooting a target that I had placed good center mass shots into but hadn't dropped) "You stopped because you were assuming your shots would be effective. I would keep shooting until I knew they had been."

    2.) On roughly the same subject: "Keep shooting until he stops doing whatever it was that made you shoot him in the first place. When he stops doing that, stop shooting him."

    On a side note, Clint and Heidi at TRO are great people and I would highly recommend any class you would care to take from them. Even taking the civilian classes, I learned a lot of things that I can apply with my military service. Very nice people, and Lakeview, OR where TR is located now is a beautiful place to visit, or go home to as I do. Go Honkers!

    I pull the trigger when I'm scared, never when I'm mad.

    -Carry it EVERYWHERE, concealed means concealed (unless metal-detectors are present)
    -Always have a spare mag
    -Always have a knife
    -Follow the "3-stupids" rule
    -Stay in "Condition Yellow"

    If you carry in Condition 3, you have two empty chambers. One in the weapon...the other between your ears.

    These are really open statements that I maintain.

    Curiosity was framed, poor judgment killed the cat - Think first, act second

    Three can keep a secret if two are dead - Don't tell anyone anything they don't need to know

    Skill gets me out of what testosterone got me into (applies more to my motorcycle riding) - Practice as close to reality as you can get. I am by no means advocating looking for trouble or maintaining a bad ass attitude with this one. My mind set is, the more possible situations that I can experience, the better I will deal with them if they really happen. If I can think of it, someone else already has. Probably gonna' get flamed for this one anyway.

    • Drop the mag/empty casings in the dirt not your hand then your pocket. Yeah, PIA to clean the dirt/sand out of the mag and police your casings...deal with it.
    • Put yourself under some sort of stress when at the range. Run a 100 yard dash then draw & shoot with gloves on and dirty/scuffed up eye protection (I would suggest the outdoor personal range that you find, not public) since we don't have access to adrenaline pills or shots.
    • Practice with a fellow ccw buddy and create scenarios with multiple targets and stick on weapons and non weapons on targets (gun, knife, bat, camera, cellphone...) while your buddy is looking the other way or back to targets.
    • If you wear corrective vision, take them off (or put them on if you are far sighted) - If you can not identify your threat target, best not shoot it, find cover instead.
    • Buy some snap caps and mix them in with your live rounds when loading (have your buddy load your mag) so you can work in clearing a dud or jam when shooting. Easier for you revolver guys, just pull the trigger again.
    • Wear the same clothes at the range that you wear at work or every day. If you are an office dwelling desk jockey, get a crappy suit and tie (dress shoes too) at the local thrift store that you are not going to loose sleep over if you get it dirty and scuff the knees/elbows at the range.

    War is not the ugliest of things. Worse is the decayed state of moral feeling which thinks nothing is worth a war. A man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which he cares for more than his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free. -J.S. Mill

    You have to make the shot when fire is smoking, people are screaming, dogs are barking, kids are crying and sirens are coming.

    It's good to shoot first; even better to shoot last.
